Out towards Cook Strait lie the offshore islands - D'Urville, Stephens, the Chetwodes and many more - you'll find yourself re-discovering these special places, voyage after voyage. When you're done exploring, come and regroup at the congenial port village of Havelock. The marina has 340 berths for vessels from 10 to 30 metres, and has all the services you'd expect in a small, smart working port. Havelock is 30 minutes by road from Blenheim and one hour from Nelson. If entering by boat, remember that the Havelock channel is more tidal than the entrance to other marinas, but it’s a very well surveyed and maintained channel with excellent navigation markers.
